Peasant Woman from Ingria (Ingermanland)

Manufactory Imperial Porcelain Manufactory, St. Petersburg Russian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 543

About 1780 the Imperial factory began the production of a large series of figures depicting Russian national types, of which fourteen are represented in the Linsky Collection. Like most of the figures, this figure is modeled from engravings published by Johann Gottlieb Georghi in his Description if All the Peoples Inhabiting the Russian State (editions of 1774, 1776, and later). The authorship of the models themselves is not established, but some may be attributable to Jean-Dominique Rachette (1744–1809), chief modeler at the factory from 1779 to 1804.
